Acrostic poems are special poems made from the letters of a word. Most often the letters are used at the beginning of the line but they can be used at the end of the line as well. Here is an example of an acrostic poem:

Easy to identify, Echinacea is
Capable of lessening the duration of a flu attack and
Heals wounds and
Infections that are bacterial and viral. He is
Notorious as an immune booster he is
Also great as an analgesic,
Carminative, alternative, febrifuge —
Every household should have this member of the
Asteraceae family on hand!
